Powering the moped is a 99.7cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine mated to an automatic single-speed gearbox that churns out a maximum power of 4.3bhp at 6000 rpm and peak torque of 6.5Nm at 3500rpm.
It gives a mileage of about 67kmpl, which is 15% higher than the previous model thanks to the TVS patented Ecothrust fuel-injected (ETFi) mill. The moped can touch a top speed of 60 to 65 km.
The TVS heavy-duty moped comes in both kickstart variants and electric start ones. It gets a centrifugal wet clutch and an ignition of Flywheel Magneto 12V, 200W at 5000rpm.
The TVS XL Heavy Duty gets built on a solid frame structure linked at the front to a telescopic spring hydraulic and a swing arm hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear. Braking duties are handled by an 80mm front drum and 100mm rear drum.
The kerb weight of the moped is 89 kg, and it gets a four-litre fuel tank. It is 1895 mm long, 670 mm wide, and 1077 mm tall. It has a ground clearance of 158 mm and has a seat height of 787 mm. Rolling the heavy-duty moped is a pair of 2.50-16 41L 6PR section tyres.

Just like that of the iconic mopeds Kinetic Luna and TVS XL Super, the fuel tank of TVS XL100 is located just below the headlight and comes with a capacity of four litres. The 99cc engine gets fitted under the floorboard.
The seat height is 787 mm, and the split seat gets designed to give a comfortable ride. The rear seat can also get removed to double up as a carrier. A pair of footpegs gets provided for the riders as the floorboard helps to carry luggage. The pillion gets a grab rail and a pair of footpegs.
The rear gets a halogen taillamp and a pair of side indicators. Rolling the moped is a pair of spoke wheels, which remain with it as a constant companion for the last four decades. An all-black exhaust and the finish for the engine bay contrast nicely with all colour options, except black.
